Wow! That Harmony is something! I'm quite smitten with my 1968 Yamaha SA-30T right now. The neck is skinny, but very full from front to back, so playing barre chords doesn't get tiresome for my left hand. Kind of sounds twangy like a Gretsch.

Man.. I want one of those black and white Silvertone. I saw Jessica Dobson of Deep Sea Diver & The Shins play one on Austin City Limits with the Shins and I wanted one instantly. It looks awesome and sounded great.

I'd wanted one for years just because they looked cool and had the silverfoil pickups. I saw this one on craigslist a few years ago and went for it - it's now my most played guitar. I just love it. The way it sounds, plays, feels, yadda yadda yadda... it suits me all around. It may not be the best guitar for everyone, but it's definitely the perfect guitar for me. :blush:

thanks man- i agree!
i used to have one of those. the pups on mine had almost zero output, though.
the bridge pickup on mine was dead too-
on inspection i discovered it had been taken apart, then all the copper wire was stuffed back in the chrome cover.
jon at tonefordays rewound it for me, to 5.9k.
neck is something like 5.2 and middle 5.5, so its a good match.

not real loud pickups, but very nice sounding.
almost p90 ish and just microphonic enough to be perfect.

gutshot-

Edit: Woah, how could I have forgotten the Jag? Here's a photo of it in a compromising, possibly incestuous, position with a solid cousin:
